DETERMINED Giants coach Jon Sharp is aiming to inflict even more misery on his Great Britain boss!
Lions assistant coach Sharp takes his top-six side to Bradford on Sunday (3.00), with many predicting a Giants win against the under-pressure Bulls and their Great Britain coach Brian Noble.
While fifth-placed Huddersfield go into the contest on the back of their excellent 24-16 triumph over Wigan a week ago, the Bulls were left smarting from a fifth loss of the campaign at Warrington, a result which left them seventh.
Sharp knows another defeat for the host club would crank up the pressure at Odsal.
But even though the Giants chief has the ultimate respect for his opposite number and the man who appointed him GB assistant, it will count for little on Sunday.
"I'm a big fan of Bradford Bulls. I like the people and I like the place," said Sharp.
"They are doing it tough right now, but they have quality players throughout the side and, once again, we know we need to be at our very best to match them.
"Bradford may have lost at Warrington last week, but they came back strongly in the second half and Brian will be looking to his players to reproduce that form from the start against us.
"If they can do that, then we're in for a big battle.
"But we're feeling confident and we'll be ready to match them."
Sharp is hoping to welcome back stand-off Chris Thorman, who has missed the last two games with a back strain, but is without winger Hefin O'Hare, who picked up a knee knock in training and won't be risked.
